mayor eric garcetti, briefly

los angeles mayor eric garcetti, photographed above the rotunda in city hall – briefly, as is the case with all politicians. the one perk: no permits required. toward the end of our prep we were stopped by a police officer who told us we didn't have permission to set the gear up there and we'd have to take everything down and move. before i could even argue garcetti showed up and said "these guys are fine." it kind of makes me want to have the mayor at all of my shoots.

frank gehry, briefly

photographed at his office in playa del rey last summer for el semenal magazine. the article was to celebrate gehry's receipt of the "prince of asturias" award in spain. shoots with important and well known people are often brief - this one was a little under three minutes.
